Al Sharpton Suggests He’s The Frederick Douglass Of Our Time [VIDEO]
1:34 PM 08/24/2014

Civil rights activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton compared his relationship with President Barack Obama to the relationship between President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist and famed orator Frederick Douglass.

On NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday, Chris Jansing asked Sharpton about a recent article in Politico Magazine labeling him a “surrogate” for Obama’s White House regarding race relations.

“First of all, I’m not a surrogate,” he contended. “I have access to the White House in every era going back to Lincoln with Frederick Douglass. Presidents talk to those that were leading at that time.”

“Not comparing Marc Morial or Melanie Campbell and I to Frederick Douglass,” Sharpton added (though the “and I” was barely audible). “But that’s nothing unusual.”

“I went to Ferguson because the family, the grandfather called to ask me to come,” he said. “The White House called while I was there, talked to me, the head of the NAACP and others. So it’s not a surrogate, it is a customary, traditional role.”

Sharpton went on to praise President Obama’s handling of the Ferguson crisis, saying if he’d given any further support to the Michael Brown family it could’ve been used “in a legal context to say the president ordered the indictment, rather than letting the process go fairly.”

Here are a couple of examples of Sharpton in the “customary, traditional role” he inherited from the brilliant nineteenth-century writer, orator, statesman and political advocate Frederick Douglass:

He's not even the George Jefferson of our times.

I have a quote of Fredrick Douglas on my desk at work, that inspires me to be the best Dad I can. I can guarantee there will never be a Al Sharpton quote worth remembering.


It is easier to raise strong children than to repair broken men.  Frederick Douglas.

Al Sharpton Suggests He’s The Frederick Douglass Of Our Time

Just like Bambi comparing himself to Lincoln, Washington & FDR.

If these losers didn't tell you how great they are, you would never come to that conclusion on your own...

If Lincoln could speak , he would say this to Al Sharpton.  “I knew Frederick Douglas. He was one of the brightest men I ever met, and a  good friend of mine, and he helped me greatly in authoring  the Great Emancipation and advancing the cause for freedom and equality for all black people, North and South.   And You sir – are no Frederick Douglas.”

Frederick Douglas helped free black people and start them on the road to equality, as did Martin Luther King a hundred years later.    Al Sharpton  and others like him enslaved them once again.

Blacks seem pre-disposed to believing lies and being enslaved more than most...
